PMQ Online Training only

This package excludes the APM PMQ examination and will be of interest to delegates who wish to acquire the PPQ qualification. The PPQ syllabus is based on the knowledge covered in PMQ plus additional topics such as ethics; these are included in the MSC PMQ Study Guide. The main difference between the two qualifications is that the PPQ examination is based on applying knowledge to a project described in the scenario-based examination questions. This means that the PPQ exam includes calculations that are excluded from the PMQ examinations.  The MSC will continue to include understanding of the calculations, when teaching the PMQ syllabus.

The PMQ online course fee of £550 + VAT includes:

  • Our MSC PMQ Study Guide - to give you the required knowledge. It contains:
    • Past APM sample questions .
    • 16 chapters  each covered in about 90 minutes during the classroom course.
    • Appendix on examination technique .
    • Appendix containing APM Specimen Examination Paper of 16 questions, plus an additional 16 questions - covers 64 of the 67 assessment criteria.
  • On-line access to MOODLE learning management system which contains:
    • Introductory video podcast ( in MP4 format) to the online course.
    • 36 video podcasts  to cover the knowledge required by the syllabus - listen to the tutor, see the slides - nearly six and a half hours long.
    • 60 multiple-choice questions  in four quizzes each taking 15 minutes.
    • copies of all APM PMQ documentation - syllabus, sample paper, guide for candidates.
    • copies of all slides used in the classroom version and podcasts.
  • Access to eight flipped-learning webinars to develop understanding of the course material.

With over 70 million users worldwide, Moodle is the most popular and trusted learning system around today. Webinars might be online versions of a classroom session; ours are not. They employ flipped-learning techniques - delegates learn the material prior to the webinar through reading the MSC Study Guide or listening to the video podcasts.  The challenging face-to-face webinars are about tackling problems to enhance understanding.

The webinars assume that delegates have already completed at least 20 hours study and can contribute positively to the discussions about the links between topics.
